I have had my Home built computer for more than a year now and recently i have started to get the BSOD. The strange thing is that it only occurs when i render my work out in 3Ds Max, i have tried almost everything, including checking recently installed drivers, removing anything that may be causing a problem,restoring, everything but but doing a clean install.
I have had a look at the minidump file and the problem seems to lie with hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe, they both receive similar crash code.
The problem is when i am in safe mode i can't load up 3ds max. It's strange that this issue is only localized to 3ds max, i can play games, i can render video's using Adobe After effects, but as soon as i start to render off any 3d animation i get BSOD
